basically the main advantage of appeon is to leverage
existing code and datawindows. so unless your company plans
to rebuild your whole application from scratch, appeon is
the best way to go. Also, you do not need to retrain your
people who are familiar with PowerBuilder in another
language like java or asp.

the disadvantage, or rather limitation, is that not
everything that PB does can be migrated to the web. Keep in
mind that PB is first and foremost a client-server language.

so if time and money are important to your boses, they
should go with appeon or any other webifying software for
PB. =)
